A one-month subscription for reading anything from more than 600000 titles and more is what Amazon’s newly introduced Kindle Unlimited program is all about. In exchange of $9.99 a month, you not only jump into thousands of eBooks but also receive unlimited access to over 2000 audiobooks from Audible.
Aimed at hardcore readers, Amazon Kindle Unlimited is live now in the US and comes with a 30-day free trial. Moreover, the retail giant is also bundling its memberships with free three-month Audible subscriptions. Access to eBooks and audiobooks through this service will be available via Kindle devices as well as Kindle reading apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, PC, Mac and Windows 8 platforms.
The 600000 books strong library possessed by Amazon contains popular books including those from The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Harry Potter series and many more. And then there’s the vast Audible library which allows you to seamlessly switch between reading and listening to your eBooks using Whispersync for Voice.
Kindle Unlimited will enable its users to experience a range of other popular features including Popular Highlights, X-Ray, customer reviews and Goodreads integration. Amazon recently also unveiled its first ever smartphone named the Fire Phone which comes equipped with mid-range specs but a whole bunch of unique features.
Take for instance its Dynamic Perspective which adds depth to its visuals, thus giving them a 3D feel. And then there’s Firefly, an app that allows you to scan and identify products around you so that you can jump right onto their Amazon pages and decide whether or not they are worth your cash.
Like we said, Amazon Kindle Unlimited is available in the US currently, and the company hasn’t revealed any plans of bringing it to other countries as of now.
